The Black Panthers
A new revolutionary culture was emerging in the 1960s, and for a short period of time the Black Panther Party was the vanguard of that change. Bold, outspoken, and idealistic, the Panthers zealously pursued their mission to upend the American establishment, and they did it with iconic style. In his latest film, documentarian Stanley Nelson chronicles the rise and decline of the Black Panther Party through the experiences of those who supported and opposed it. He joins us Friday to talk about it. (Rebroadcast)
